The Foxes, who are four points off the promotion places in the Championship, face four games in quick succession against Millwall, Hull City, Burnley and Cardiff before the turn of the new year, with three of those coming on the road.

But while Whitbread insists that maximum points is the target over the Christmas period he also believes a sense of perspective is required.

"There's a long way to go," he told the club's official website.

"The league won't be won after the next four games, but you can pick up points in a short space of time, which is great for your confidence going into the second half of the season.

"They're all big games and we want to win them all, but it won't decide our season. We just want to stay in there and look to kick on in the second half of it."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
